About me Chris Spiller 🙂
I’ve spent the last 20 years working in the drinks industry, mainly in bottling, but also in product development,management, and gin distilling. I’ve got nearly 20 years experience of managing bottling lines and staff, and yes, I did do all the tasting 🙂 My passion is Single Malt Scotch Whisky, I currently have about 140 bottles! I’ve visited about 25 Scottish whisky distilleries, some of them more than once. I left my previous employer to set up my own spirit company “The Fabulous Vodka Company” in 2008 which is growing bigger each year (visit www.fabulousvodka.co.uk) I spent 12 years living on a narrowboat on the regents canal in and around west London, I loved this so much that I named my Gin “Perivale Dry” after the area of west London where I lived on the boat at the time! I love skiing, canoeing and camping of which I’ve done a lot of over the years. About two years ago I was diagnosed Diabetic and have been learning how to deal with this and look after myself better with the help of my ever patient partner Sarah! My dream for the future is to buy a larger boat for myself, Sarah and our boys to live on…and to run my own distillery of course!
